I've been researching the evolution of post-menopausal longevity in humans. My collaborators and I have amended the popular "Grandmother Hypothesis" with a genetics perspective, and have found a sex-specific mortality trend in grandchildren based on X-Chromosome relatedness with grandmothers. Here at Cambridge I plan to continue studying the evolution of life-history traits affecting humans at the earliest and latest stages of life.
